    Pros

    One of my favorite things to say about CSI is that over the past 52+ years and amazing growth, this company has maintained its customer and employee-focused culture. We believe in doing the right thing by our customer, our employees, and our communities. CSI invests in their employees and gives everyone the opportunity to be successful. It's not uncommon to encounter a fellow employee who is celebrating a 20, 30, even 40 year anniversary! How amazing is that!?!

    Cons

    CSI offers great benefits but I would like to see them evolve to complement today's workforce (and it's not just "Millennials")

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting CSI's wonderful culture but always look for ways to enhance it.

    I have been working at Computer Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It's hard to beat 46 years of continued growth!!!, Excellent succession plan in place for Senior Leaders and critical positions . Very diverse and experienced board of directors. CSI continues to attract and retain the very best employees in the industry. When a company is great like CSI there are always companies trying to buy in and acquire our employees, customers and technology. Our culture is second to none with the lowest employee turnover and highest retention of our customers.

    Cons

    When young and inexperienced employees leave CSI they are surprised the way they are treated by their new company. Very few companies have the culture and care about their employees like CSI.

    Advice to Management

    Ignore the negativity of social media. Its easy for people to sit back and take petty shots when people are no longer involved or employed at CSI.

    Pros

    Coworkers make the job bearable.

    Cons

    Before you apply at CSI, ask yourself these questions:

    1. Do you like yourself?
    2. Do you value your personal time?
    3. Do you dislike micromanagement?
    4. Do you want to be treated as a person and not an asset?

    If you answered no to any of those questions, you'll fit right in. If you answered yes, stay far away.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees for crying out loud.

    “Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.” -Sir Richard Branson

    Pros

    Generally above-average compensation for the area, with a very good benefits package including profit sharing. In my experience employees are treated well. Most management actually seems to care about CSI's employees on a personal level.

    Cons

    Communication between departments is extremely lacking. Often times customers know about new products being released before all employees do. Technical changes are sometimes made without consideration for, or input from, other departments that the changes will impact.

    I have enjoyed working with CSI, there are things that I disagree with, but I think you will find that anywhere you go.

    None that I can think of

    Pros

    Job security, medium turn over, no travel, no flexible hours but if you need to do something during work hours you can leave and make up time, coworkers are awesome.

    Cons

    Pay, some poor managers depending on department, extra hours expected/demanded often with no end in sight under some MGMT mandated from the top, no advancement opportunities, excellent work expected but not rewarded, strong female favoritism, company is biased against programmers and treats them as lesser individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Properly reward excellent work and don't ignore advice from employees trying to improve things, don't burn out your employees and treat them like they are replaceable, extra hours shouldn't be the norm especially when there is no foreseeable end
